Whats the difference between:

Needle Stop "Up" vs. Memorized Needle Up Down Key?
I am researching Janome Machines and some specs have both listed and some just one listed.

Thanks

Needle Stop up= the needle will always be in the up position when you shop sewing. Memorized Needle Up Down Key = you are able to either have the needle always stop down or up. I have 2 Janome machines one is the Sew Precise needle always up, and I have DC4039PR which has the
Memorized Needle Up Down Key. If you push the key it will always stop in the down position if not the up position.

Great sewing is knowing exactly, what your machine will do.

Got it. Thanks so much. I am new to the newer machines. I'm still using the singer from the 60's that my mom bought me used many years ago...

I have the up/down key and it's one of my favorite features that my needle stops in the down position when I stop sewing. Very useful since the fabric doesn't slip when I stop in the middle of a seam to readjust my hands or the fabric, not to mention when pivoting around curves and corners

Please excuse any typos, ipad keyboards are hard for me.

My machine doesn't have the needle up/ down button and it is the one thing I really wish I had. When I am sewing a seam if I stop sewing the needle is almost always out of the fabric and then the fabric sometimes slips around so I spend far too much time turning the hand wheel to put the needle into the fabric.
